Ethiopia: Coffee Annual

Commodities

Ethiopia’s coffee production in MY17/18 (Oct-Sep) is forecast to remain steady at 6.545 million 60-kg bags (~393,000 metric tons). Exports during this period are expected to be roughly half of production at 3.31 million bags (~199,000 metric tons). In June of this year, the government plans to institute reforms to the country’s coffee marketing and trading systems in order to spur additional export sales. The impact of these forthcoming reforms remains to be seen.
